Description

Spangenberg Castle 

According to legend, Spangenberg Castle was built by "Wilden Kaspar" in the remote, deserted Speyerbach valley in the 11th century. It served as a hiding place for him and the emperor's daughter he had kidnapped. On 6 January 1100, it came into the possession of the Speyer diocese as a gift. The first documented mention of the castle dates back to 1317. For many years, the castle served as the residence of the Stutmeister, who bred horses for the Speyer bishops.
